It’s officially Fall! My favourite time of year! While I will miss the summer, I’m definitely more of a pumpkin spice latte, vampy lip and big wool scarf kind of girl. Call me basic, but it’s the truth. Last Fall was such a busy time for me. We were in the process of moving into our new apartment and I was getting ready to start a new job. A lot of life changes, which was super stressful to say the least. As a result, I feel like I didn’t really get the chance to dive into Fall fashion the way I normally do. So this year, I’ve decided to get a bit of a head start and really go for it.
I was so happy to see that a lot of stores are having some really great sales right now. It gives me the opportunity to mix and match different pieces to make a great Fall wardrobe. Since I’m pretty much starting from scratch, I decided to focus on basics for now; a good cardigan, cute flats, and of course a huge scarf. Now if you know me, you know that my basics are usually not that basic. I love bright colours, a good pattern (especially a leopard print), and sometimes even some sparkle.
On a bit of whim, I decided to check out what Joe Fresh had come out with for the Fall. I’ve purchased a few basics from them over the years and have loved the quality and price. After scrolling through their website, I was surprised to see how many things had caught my eye! They really seem to have updated their style to become more modern. I decided to pick up a few things and share here how to go about building an affordable Fall wardrobe and where to look. Here’s what I purchased!
Essential Cardi (Bright Red)
Putting this piece in my shopping cart was a no brainer. Cardigans are a basic must for me. I can mix and match them with different tops that I already have in my wardrobe and pair them with any type of bottom for a polished look. This cardigan is super soft and is made with 60% cotton and 40% rayon. I also really love the colour. I think red really fits well with the Fall season and allows me to have the pop of colour I like to incorporate into my wardrobe.
Price: $24 CAD.
Print Boyfriend Tee (Brown)
This tee was another no brainer for me. I’m in love with leopard print. I think it’s such a cool pattern and can really help to dress up a casual look. This tee is 100% rayon, making it light enough to layer with a blazer or jacket on a cooler day. It has a small pocket on to top left and is a bit of a longer shirt. I can see myself wearing this on casual Fridays at the office with a pair of jeans and a jacket or on the weekend when I am out and about.
Price: $19 CAD.
Plaid Scarf (Red)
This purchase was easily my favourite. I love big fluffy scarves for the Fall. This scarf is perfection and I am in love. The fabric, pattern and fringe are exactly what I am looking for when adding accessories to my wardrobe. While this scarf is made from 100% acrylic, it’s super soft and feels closer to a wool/cotton blend. This piece was on the pricer side, in my opinion, but was totally worth the splurge and will be a staple in my wardrobe for Fall.
Price: $29 CAD.
Faux Suede Loafers (Tan)
Yes, I know. More leopard print. I can’t help myself! These loafers are just the cutest! I can see these shoes going with dress pants to spice up a work look or with a pair of jeans for a more casual weekend outfit. Although they are a little stiff and will take some breaking in, I think they fit my foot really well. These loafers are 100% synthetic faux suede.
Price: $39 CAD.
